Spent three days on the live aboard, King Snefro 6, and it was a great experience. We have three older teens/pre-teens who are divers as well and the dive masters were attentive to them, while picking sites we could all enjoy. We also have a younger, 8-year old daughter (non-diver) and they were fantastic taking her snorkeling when we weren't diving. The food was excellent, the accommodations were great, and I can't say enough good things about the crew!
Crew was very attentive and made sure everyone in my family felt special and well attended to, even my youngest daughter who is not yet old enough to dive. Ehab, our chef, and Hossam did an incredible job with all our meals, and the dive crew made diving easy for my other children. They even went out of their way to help celebrated my wife's and mine 100th dive on this trip. I would highly recommend this group in King Snefro fleet for anyone looking to dive the Red Sea. If I get a chance to return, I will definitely use them again.
Had a terrific time on the Philippines Siren, crew were fabulous and look after everyone on board, had some great macro and turtles, but the highlight was diving with the whale sharks
Nach einem langen Flug mit Verspätungen wurden wir nett empfangen und zum Boot King Snefro 6 gebracht. Die Kabinen sind zweckmäßig, sauber mit Du/Wc, die Betten so breit, dass man sogar zu zweit darin liegen könnte.
Die Crew versorgte uns mit leckerem Essen, drei Mahlzeiten und mehreren Snacks nach jedem Tauchgang, zB. Obstsäfte, Fruchtcocktail, Cakes usw. Die Crew war sehr aufmerksam, hilfsbereit und immer gut gelaunt. Am letzten Abend gab es ein umfangreiches BBQ - bereits die Zubereitung war ein köstlicher Anblick!
Diese tolle Erfahrung -unsere erste Bootssafari- wurde dann noch von den sympathischen Mittauchern, den unglaublich schönen bunten Tauchplätzen und zwei Begegnungen mit Delfinen gekrönt! Da lohnt sich auch die vielleicht umständlichere Anreise!
Brilliant live aboard dive trip. The staff could not have been any more helpful or friendly. Your every need was catered for (sometimes before you even knew you needed it!) The cabins and common areas of the ship are beautifully finished in dark wood and very comfortable. I have both a severe food allergy and back problems and the staff went out of their way to help me. We went to see the Whale Sharks at Oslob, but there were lots of critters to find on the other dives that we don't see in Australia. The guides were gifted at finding sea life that I would never have seen on my own, and very generous with their time and knowledge. We will definitely be back, this time to do a longer trip which gives you the chance to see Thresher Sharks as well.
Everything was amazing, from the food to the interactions with the crew and the dives.
My family had planned to go on pretty much a world tour, beginning with Rome. We then planned to stay aboard the liveaboard for a couple of days, enough for my parents to reach their hundredth dive with Snefro Fleet. That was exactly what we did, and I must say, I loved this diving experience more than any other that I have had. The crew was very accommodating, and the food was just amazing. I would come back without any hesitation, no doubt about it!
Stay away!!! Unprofessional, unsafe instructor and unacceptable staff behaviour.
With a CMAS 2 and over 70 dives across several seas I have never lived such a bad experience with a diving centre that clearly has no respect for divers and worst for safety.
Briefly summarised; cruel safety issues, lies seems to be common and we were finally mocked and threatened by the staff...
Aware of difficult dive conditions around Nusa Penida (strong changing currents) we decided to change diving centre to one that seemed to be safer based on comments and recommendations. We started by booking dives at Octopus with Thea, the manager, who seemed at 1st to be nice and professional.
The manager Thea simply books divers on sites that are appealing without consulting its staff/instructor.

Buceo excelente, el equipo alquilado en perfectas condiciones. Dive masters profesionales, personal de a bordo atentos y agradables
Great local shop. dean is super helpful and certified my 14 year old in the sound. he is patient and knowledgeable. the shop is fully stocked and really cute. I've been diving for 25 years and I wanted my daughter in good hands and she was.
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.

We feel that reviews of various businesses and locations are some of the most valuable benefits that the internet has brought about. There are people that truly deliver a good service and take pride in the work they do and then there are those who are in for the short term profit.
